Yes, look at the thread about the 2nd TS.

Any idea if FV215b owners will get the Super Conq for free or will we need to grind it?

Everyone who has FV215b in garage will get SConq for free and gets to keep FV, and if you've unlocked FV but not purchased you will have SConq unlocked but you won't be able to get FV anymore.

Managed to finish grinding it yesterday evening & bought it in prep for the patch.  Seems like a worthwhile one to keep as it's so different to its replacement.

Yep, did it myself too. Funny thing is the Churchill I was my first ever tier 5 tank so I'd been grinding the line for a good 4 and a half years :D

Surprised the Churchill VII and Black Prince didn't excite you enough to grind it faster :)

Well it's better than suddenly having a big gaping hole in the mantlet or something.. :) 

 

Shame, though. I would've liked the Super Conq cupola on the FV215b too..

Really? That's big! Though unless they also removed the turret base weak spot everyone will still be able to go through it..

It doesn't have any notable improvements to turret or side armor.

So anyone seen an armor layout yet? Did they fix the view port on top, or the hull armor below the turret cheeks that was 300+ on the super conq.
